Tynemouth
The Northern Star
Anonymous
 
A Tynemouth Ship

      THE NORTHERN STAR
      Sailed over the bar
Bound to the Baltic Sea;
      In the morning gray
      She stretched away;—        5
’T was a weary day to me!
 
      For many an hour
      In sleet and shower
By the lighthouse rock I stray;
      And watch till dark        10
      For the wingéd bark
Of him that is far away.
 
      The castle’s bound
      I wander round,
Amidst the grassy graves:        15
      But all I hear
      Is the north-wind drear,
And all I see are the waves.
 
      The Northern Star
      Is set afar!        20
Set in the Baltic Sea:
      And the waves have spread
      The sandy bed
That holds my Love from me.

END OF VOL. III.
